    Snow showers generally moving from about 300º (SSW). Lines up moisture convergence nicely along the A7 and eastern edge of the Pentlands terrain. Too bad temps are above 0! This could have been a nice afternoon dumping for Edinburgh

    Ladies and gentlemen you are not going to believe it. After a wait of almost 3 years... 😮  

    I don't suppose I have anything to complain about this winter...      .      

    I've waited years to get a picture of the house covered with snow.  Finally!

    I’m not 100% sure I believe this post. Something looks off with it 🤨 or maybe it is just really unbelievable that someone would drive like that. 

    Think the culprit was caught in dundee

    What a crazy week,

     

    30cm + still on the ground after an extra 1cm last night and a few beefy showers incoming for dundee this afternoon. 

     

    Few pics from dundee this week. Madness

    That bottom one of King St would make a great Christmas Card. I lived above that pub for a year when I was a student in the mid 90s.

    Tayside looks a target area for snow this afternoon 

    Looking at the snow radar, forc Aberdeen it's the parting of the red sea!!

    No major thaw here. Crunchy and compacted after last night sleet and snow. Nice change to squeaky snow.

    interesting comments on longer range!👍

    The usual Moses snow shield the dewpoints are still pretty low -6c in the city so any thawing is going to be limited

    Temp -1.0C, feeling raw in the wind and a brief snow shower just passed over. Looks like more to come, not often we get snow here from a SE flow.

    Overnight low of -8.6C from late yesterday evening. Cloudier this arvo after some initial brightness and the temperature has nudged up to 1.4C, so a bit of a gentle thaw on the go. 

    This winter is one of the greats already, up there with the winters of the 1980s, and looking at the Met O long range forecast and the mood music in the models, I don't think we're quite done yet.

    The one good thing about the upcoming thaw is I can finally get on with decorating the bathroom that was paused at the start of this cold spell😂

    Yet another beautiful, sunny, crisp and clear day today, which is nice as I have two family funerals shortly and it feels better to have good weather for them, for some reason, not that I can attend either because I'm shielding but I have video links so that will have to do.

    Temperature 3.2deg.C up from a minimum of -1.6deg.C at 04:09. humidity 52%, wind 3 to 7mph southerly with a max gust of 14mph at 04:59, pressure 1032.4hPa falling slowly, no recorded precipitation, cloud cover 2/8 and the dew point is at -6deg.C.

    Right, black tie on, first zoomeral at 15:00, second zoomeral at 16:00 and zoompub at 17:00. The rest of the day is sorted.

    I'd say a few light ones the heavier stuff stays south of the city though the odd heavier one can't be ruled out the Aberdeenshire/Angus border area seems the place to be early evening,I only go in the mad house at 11pm for a brief check 😂

    A heavy shower just passed through here too - combined with sudden squalls of wind it got pretty dramatic for 15 mins with the snow blowing off the trees and roof!
